Well, the next two weeks are gonna be busy for all the people out there who
are considered being house wives and Homemakers, like “ME.”
You have finished signing, addressing, and mailing all your Christmas cards for family and friends (let’s hope?)
You have bought a new dress, some cute high heel pumps, and fresh dainty perfume to be your best!?!?!
(I can dream…. I could be dressed as a feminine as a girly host, can’t I?)
All the presents are bought and wrapped under the tree you decorated just after Thanksgiving….right?!?!
Now, there are cookies to bake, groceries to purchase, things to put away and clutter to store.
(this is where I get to put my vintage apron collection to good use!)
There are shelves and nick knacks to dust, table clothes, napkins, and Christmas towels to wash,
walls and ceilings to clean, and floors to mop.
Area rugs to vacuum and shampoo, sidewalks and driveways to keep ice free, and a Christmas meal to plan and execute.
Yes, we are hosting Christmas for my spouse’s side of the family, not too bad, 8 people in all.
But you want to be a good hostess, as we all have been to dinner parties where you were not even offered a glass of water.
Or there wasn’t enough dinners rolls to go around…no place but a metal chair to sit in, a strange odor near the fireplace, dust falling in your drink from the ceiling fan above, gum stuck under the dining room table, sneeze flem smeared on the wall, and house pets licking candy dishes on the end tables!
Yes, I been there, experienced that, and was just hoping to get home “without” contracting some disease!
NOT AT MY HOUSE!
So “Please!”…if you are going to host a Holiday Dinner Party for family and friends, it is your time, as a feminine and girly homemaker, to show a little compassion for you guests, who have drove the gauntlet of Sunday drivers and holiday drunkards… to be at your home!
If you can get your spouse to help or if they takes the reigns to host a nice event, do what you can to look at the “details” and little things that make the holiday special.
If you can find my thread in the Transformations Message board ( have to be a member!), read were I hope to post some of my experiences with pictures, tips, and recipes for a traditional German/Polish Christmas Holiday Dinner Party, like grandma use to host.
Enjoy the holidays and be careful…
Were you a good boy this year????? …
A little humor to tickle your fancy…..
During the Holiday, don’t forget…you are never fully dressed without a Smile!
